This time, we take a big old bite out of the yellow bell pepper that is the Iron Chef Board Game! In this title based on the original Japanese series, players take the role of one of the four Iron Chefs in a free-for-all battle in Kitchen Stadium. Chefs jockey to present a three course meal, scoring bonus points for making dishes in their own specialty style and for actually remembering to include the Secret Ingredient. But be careful! At any time another Iron Chef could sabotage your dish...if you don't burn your own vegetables first! Will this game earn the favor of our panel of judges? Plus: We plagiarize pay tribute to the venerable Shut Up and Sit Down for our Battle of Wits!

It always seems weird to me that iron chef was an early competitive cooking show in the US? Is that just for Food Network?

Actually Iron Chef was a Japanese cooking show that had some mild success. After its run ended, the food network picked it up for filler programming and it became a ?BIG? hit for them... which caused the japanese maker to begin producing special events again... and the food network to make an American version...

love the old japanese shows the US ones ... not so much...

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

That just gave me a flashback to when they had those at wallmart. I think someone set of 10 of them in one go and the toy section was filled with Elmo's insane giggling.
